James singing - music notes

Music Meme Day 4

Day 01- A song that makes me happy ... Come on Eileen by Dexy's Midnight Runners
Day 02- A song that helps you clear your head ... In My Room by The Beach Boys
Day 03- A song that makes you laugh ... Right Said Fred by Bernard Cribbins

Day 04- A song that reminds you of something

When we were kids (well, untill we were all teens) we used to visit my Mum's parents in Northamptonshire regularily. It was about 3 hours each way ... and we had 3 rules:-
  • We would change seats so each of the 3 of us would have the central seat - at Puckeridge and The Caxton Gibbit!
  • We would play the Pub Sign game - you know, counting the legs in the pictures + the names.
  • We would sing ... and it was 2 songs that we sang over and over again ...
"Goodbye Dolly Gray" - a Boer War song
"Two Little Boys" - a hit when we were kids sung by Rolf Harris. Whenever I hear that song, I am a kid travelling to the village of Stanwick!

My James song that reminds me of something is "Looking at You"
I heard James sing this when I was at Union Chapel the second time - I had just walked up to the front to take some photos, and as he always does, he looked directly at me ... needless to say the photos didn't come out, I was shaking too much!

Spuffy - in my dreams always here

Just A Couple Of Beautiful Flowers.

As most of you know - and anyone in RL knows I an NOT a gardener ... but this flower in a tub in my back garden was just too beautiful not to share.


And, this is lovely to see that it's survived - not everything did this winter.  this is my Jaykub memorial rose -
